the biggest organizer of the 20th- century. he organized the march on washington. and he spoke to fdr and told him about the condition of black people in this country, working people in this country. and fdr said i don't disagree with anything you said, but you have to make me do it. this is a story that barack obama, who was a senator then running for president, responded and said make me do it. make me do it. and i think that is the challenge of this second term. who will have president obama's here? it is not about what is in his heart or what he believes. he is a community organizer. he did not -- he responds to demand. power concedes nothing without a demand. it never has and it never will. and that is, i think, the challenge of the many different groups that actually elected him. i think the first time around, in 2008, people were shocked. they were exhausted. and they also saw a real right- wing backlash against president obama that they did not want to contribute to. that was racist as well. you know, the birth or movement, you cannot be from here. who wants to back that?

powerful players in washington and on wall street. you can read how they did it in this book "winner-take-all politics" by two of the country's top political scientists, jacob hacker and paul pierson. they were drawn to a mystery every bit as puzzling as a crime drama "how washington made the rich richer and turned its back on the middle class." quote -- "we wanted to know how our economy stopped working to provide prosperity and security for the broad middle class." and that's what you saw. >> i think a lot of people know. the top one or two wrongs have shot up into the stratosphere while all of the other ones have stayed more or less in place. it's really astonishing how concentrated the games of economic growth have been. >> you know the startling statistic that we have in the book is that if you take all of the income gains from 1979 to 2007, so all the increased household income over that period around 40% of those gains went to the top 1%. and if you look at the bottom 90%, they had less than that combined. and it's not just a one or a two-year story. i mean, we've seen a terri
